Halliwell Named Best-selling Kids Author

Former SPICE GIRL GERI HALLIWELL has been named 2008's best selling children's author.
The singer-turned-storyteller published her own series of children's books about fictional heroine Ugenia Lavender earlier this year (08) and has become the surprise hit of the kid's literature market.
In less than months, Halliwell has shifted a mammoth 250,000 copies of her illustrated tale in the U.K. - which focuses on the antics of a feisty nine-year-old.
And not only has Halliwell seen massive sales, she has also been named the most successful celebrity author in recent years, according to British retailer WHSmith.
The 36-year-old says, "I'm so happy that everyone loves Ugenia as much as I do."
But the star isn't stopping at writing short stories - she announced earlier this week (begs29Sep08) that she had penned her first film screenplay.
